The bride wore a gown of white brocade richly trimmed with old point lace. A veil of old point also fell over her face, confined by a tiara of diamonds. A diamond pendant hanging from a necklace of pearls sparkled at her throat. She carried a large bouquet of lilies of the valley. Preceding her were the two little maids of honor, her sisters, Miss Sadie and Miss Constance Schieffelin, who wore white silk dresses, white hats, and carried baskets of pink roses. The ushers were Messrs. Bond Emerson, T. J. Oakley Rhinelander, Amory Sibley Carhart, Edward
Perry, and Fleming Crooks of England. The groom's best man was Mr. Ernest Bliss.

Among those present were Mr. John Jay, Mrs. Ernest Crosby, Mr. and Mrs. James Beekman, Mr. and Mrs. William Rhinelander, Mr. and Mrs. Philip Rhinelander, Mr. and Mrs. William Schieffelin, The Misses Rhinelander, Miss Fannie Walker, the Misses Webb, Mrs. W.
